Solution

The correct option is C liquid
In covalent compounds, the constituent atoms are held together by weak van der Waals force. Due to weak intermolecular forces between the constituent particles, covalent compounds exist in liquid and gaseous state. As a result, lees heat energy is required to break the covalent bond.
